Commenting on the Coalition Government's launch of the Review of the National Curriculum in England, Chris Keates, General Secretary of the NASUWT, the largest teachers' union, said:
"Teachers want another curriculum review like a hole in the head.
"This is a pointless review when ministers have already determined that children should have a 1950s-style curriculum.
"Last week the Coalition Government dismissed a whole raft of current core subjects as unimportant. A review is unlikely to change this prejudiced and elitist view."
